Player Tips

Before The Showcase

Call all colleges you are interested in and let them know the dates, times and location of the showcase. Invite them to see you display your skills. Tell them you will be attending the USBA camp.

Your Job At The Showcase

  • Arrive early. Anticipate delays due to poor directions
  • Dress before you walk up to the field. Nothing looks worse than a half dressed sloppy ball player
  • Wear a shirt that has your name spelled on the back. With 100 other players on the field you want your name to stand out
  • Appear relaxed and comfortable, even if you are not.
  • Do not ask your parents to run errands for you. Get your own jacket from the car. Show responsibility.
  • Listen to the camp directors. Be where you are supposed to be.
  • Be attentive and alert. This is not a time to goof off with the guys.
  • Wait until after the workout to ask for running times, arm grades, etc.
  • If you are having a bad day, realize that there are other camps.

Winners Know There Will Be Other Days

Many times coaches and scouts will have seen you play before they know your skill level. They like to see how you react when things do not go your way. If you show a good attitude and composure when you are not having your best day you will leave a good impression in their minds. Anyone can have a great attitude when things are going well, but only true winners realize they are better than what they are displaying.
